I just found your web page and to my amazement every single word that was written i totally felt! I agree 1000 % with everything you believe in and wish there was a legal requirement for dog owners to have the basic understandings of a dogs behavior and how to bring it up into a happy home with an enriched environment.
I educated myself due to my own errors and inexperience that caused a loss of my dog I adored just because I didn’t recognize his signs of pain. This lead me to read read read, so much so I applied to do my Msc Veterinary Physiotherapy so I could focus on helping rescues and our local Animal Welfare Trust, rehab dogs who had suffered pain and injury, where I feel a lot and mostly is due to human error. I still can’t believe I bought Caesar Milan’s training DVDs and now it makes me sick to watch them. I’m not sure if you saw Alan Titchmarsh’s interview with Caesar, I don’t think he’ll ever come back to the UK again after that.
